Family law: What is Resolution?

    Family law: What is Resolution?

    Resolution is a group of family lawyers, and other professionals, that promotes a non-confrontational approach to resolving family disputes. Members encourage solutions that consider the needs of the whole family - and in particular the best interests of children.

    We follow a Code of Practice that includes treating everyone with respect and without judgement.

    Resolution is supported by the Courts and senior legal professionals in the UK, including the judiciary.

    What is the purpose of Resolution?

    Resolution encourages good practice and supports training and development, seeking to ensure we are true experts in our field. It campaigns for changes in the law to benefit clients and to make disputes easier to resolve. Resolution operates nationally and locally.

    Are Porter Dodson lawyers members of Resolution?

    Yes, all of our lawyers are members. We believe it is important to be members of Resolution and strive to work with integrity and objectivity, putting our clients’ needs first.

    Resolution locally

    Our local regional group covers Somerset. We are delighted to announce that Lauren Preedy, an associate solicitor at our Taunton office, has been elected Chair of Somerset Resolution for this coming year. Julia Perrins and Amanda Jones, also of the Taunton office, are committee members, as is Cathryn Smith, based at our Yeovil office, who is Press Officer. We are proud to have such a contingent of Porter Dodson solicitors involved.

    What are Lauren Preedy’s plans for this coming year?

    Lauren will be arranging training and social gatherings for the local legal profession, and other professionals involved in the family Court process. Lauren will also attend four regional liaison meetings in London, to provide input to Resolution nationally.

    If you are a local professional and have an idea for an event or training that you would like to see run by Resolution, please contact Lauren at lauren.preedy@porterdodson.co.uk or 01823 625800.

    How does Resolution benefit our clients?

    Membership ensures that Porter Dodson is at the forefront of advances in family law and committed to a non-confrontational approach, where possible, putting the needs of children at the forefront of those considerations.
